China's alleged Badminton match/age fixing

Recommended Posts

Match fixing in China is never ending. There are more than thousands and even millions of articles about how China system fixed up matches under the order of Li Yongbo who is also the head coach for 24 years in China badminton. Anyway I think I will not post all the articles here. There are way too many articles. I just post some of them here only. :d

Match fixing among China players is very rampant. This time the umpire had to take over and warn the players. Embarrassingly this incident happen during Fuzhou China Open 2018 MD match between Li Junhui / Liu Yuchen and He Jiting / Tan Qiang.

After that drama and match fixing fiasco caused by China team in London 2012 Olympics, I thought China might have learn a good lesson and no more match fixing. Turns out it became worse and even Super Series tournament they also want to fix the match among team mates now. Gosh.

Now my question here is what should the umpire do when he / she detects match fixing while the players are playing?

Should they just ignore it and let the players continue with the match or should they stop the match and disqualified the players from playing?

Any idea?

How can we prevent match fixing?

Denmark makes racket over 'match-fixing' Chinese badminton players

The national association for badminton in Denmark says the sport's world federation should punish Chinese players for a match at last week's Fuzhou China Open which has been described as a “farce”.
 

Bo Jensen, director of Badminton Denmark, wants the Badminton World Federation (BWF) to take action after seeing footage of a quarter final match in which He Jiting and Ta Qiang defeated Li Junhui and Liu Yuchen in three sets.

“I am giving my support to the criticism. This is cheating, it's match-fixing and we can't accept it,” Jensen said to TV2 Sport.

“In our context, this is just as bad as doping, and it must be punished because if it is not, we will damage the sport's reputation amongst fans and the many sponsors that are making huge investments at the moment,” he added.

Several Danish badminton players are reported to have been present during the match. Doubles pair Mads Pieler Kolding and Mads Conrad-Petersen lodged a complaint with tournament organisers following the match about the way it had been played.

Another player, Hans-Kristian Vittinghus, later posted an update on Facebook in which he compared the match to a scandal during the 2012 Olympic Games in London, when eight players from China, South Korea and Indonesia were disqualified for deliberately trying to lose.

“This was a complete farce of a match which made me think of the London Olympics when 4 pairs deliberately tried to lose their matches. I kid you not, it was this bad,” Vittinghus wrote, citing errors in play that “just (don't) happen at this level”.

“Difficult to get hard evidence, but if you have watched a bare minimum of world class badminton, you'd know what just happened,” he also wrote.

The BWF told TV2 Sport that it would not comment on the issue prior to receiving a report from the tournament's organisers.

Worse part here is case close and no action taken on the cheating players. BWF is really horrible. Instead of solving the problem they choose to close the case. Wow.
